Inclusive Recovery

Not all residents benefit when their cities prosper, but some cities have used their economic turnarounds to become more inclusive and to share the benefits of growth more broadly.

Our Inclusive Recovery work examines how cities can overcome economic distress in a way that provides the opportunity for all residents—especially those who have historically been excluded—to benefit from and contribute to economic prosperity.

Through data tools and research insights, this body of work explores national trends and provides local analyses for city leaders and their partners looking to implement policies and programs that promote inclusive recovery.
